My Week with Marilyn (2011)
Few can pull off portraying a cultural icon with such depth and conviction – just ask Naomi Watts! Not only did Michelle Williams give a stellar performance as the renowned Marilyn Monroe, but she also gave one of the best performances of her career. Set in 1956 England, Marilyn Monroe is cast in an upcoming film by top a British director. Colin Clark, a young and aspiring film student, is hired as an assistant on the film but his role ends up being much greater as he develops a relationship with the Hollywood starlet. Despite the many warnings of the grim future a relationship with Monroe would be, Clark becomes even more smitten by her. As the film progresses, Williams gets you attached to Monroe, and what would become of this budding romance is what makes this film a true testament to the tragic life of Monroe.
